Turner: In the Light of Claude

Marina Vaizey reviews the exhibition Turner Inspired: In the Light of Claude at the National Gallery, London, on view through June 5, 2012.

Vaizey notes that Turner "took from Claude the vastness of landscape, its beauty and importance, but perhaps above all, as the exhibition title suggests, the overwhelming inspiration was a Claudian illumination, the irradiating light from the sun beaming down on an idealised landscape from the centre of a limitless sky." She adds "Compared to Claude, Turner seems almost rowdy, even rambunctious."
